America should hold a parade for General Petraeus and the troops.
Not a victory parade but a parade of thanks. Let's not repeat mistakes of the past: let's say thank to those who have served so successfully. Now is the time and what is more patriotic, more appreciative than a parade?
A parade down Pennsylvania Avenue on the Fourth of July or Veterans Day would give everyone who supports our troops—Democrat and Republican, pro-war and anti-war—a chance to show that support, a chance to say thank you for your service and sacrifice.
So . . . how do we do it? Send your ideas, let's see if this can grow some legs.
